With the interest in Trail/Enduro bikes increasing, there’s been a lot of new component options developed for riders recently. Inside we take a look at some of the recent contenders in this space so you can compare and see which ones have the features you’re most interested in.
Video: 2015 Eundro / Trail Fork Offerings Rundown
We’ve had a good amount of time on-board the RockShox Pike and its quite the winner in the RockShox camp of products in our opinion. The charger damper works impressively well and controlls the suspension day in and out. It’s an easy recommendation for us to make for riders and is easily one the benchmark forks out today.

Marzocchi – 350CR
We’ve covered the new Marzocchi 350CR already but we’ve added a few shots as well of their new 27.5 fork option.
2015 FOX 36
FOX has evolved the 36 with a whole new chassis for 2015. They dropped a half pound, designed the fork to work with 15 or 20mm, revised the damper , and created a new air spring. It is available in options to fit all of the wheel sizes (26, 27.5, 29).
New Float air spring in the 36 and an adjustable air volume spacer setup (blue in the picture below) to fine tune the progressiveness of the fork.
SR Suntour Auron /Aion
The $700 retail fork Auron is already available in the market already and they’ve now trickled the technology down to a fork called the Aion for $550 that is a little bit heaver but with similar technologies. Featuring their Quick Service Product design philosophy this fork is easy to service and keep you on the trails.
The new Stage fork from MRP has a lot of neat things built into its design. It has a lot of adjustability and is quite lightweight. Ramp control (on the fly adjustment of ending stroke spring ramp). Read more details in the specifications listed in the picture.
DVO is a relatively new player in the trail bike space but they’ve got a lot of suspension knowledge that has trickled down from their Emerald fork.
